Subject: Feeling Fortunate
I don't think it would have mattered whether they played well or not (they did!). We were together again. I remember standing at one of the entrances to the arena, looking out over the crowd. Candace had the lights on the crowd in rainbow colors, and I remember thinking, "The Tribes are together again!" The family was meeting and Papa was in charge. I felt so privileged to be there. I knew this was a special night in the history of The Dead, and I was there. I was home.
30 years down the road, it is definitely one of my top 5 memories of my time as a Deadhead. (5 stars for historical significance)

Subject: Greatest Story Ever Told...
I just love this Greatest. Like Al Pachino said in Scarface: "Serious Money!"
Subject: what can you say?
sound quality is not great, especially during the first set...very tinny, but workable. second set is better.
Subject: best show I ever saw!
Subject: Chronic Show
He proves to us that he is da man. I prefer dead in 86 and 95 so far. I will continue my travels. The sound quality is about a 2 or 3, but the show is for sure a five. Jerry Bear is Da Man!!!!! The band that forgot time is what this show makes me think of!
Subject: Energy A, Sound C
Subject: Jerrys' Return
Yes it was. Jerry WAS never the same. Listen to his voice. Youthful Jerry had now completlely disappeared and ol craggy Jerry emerged. Still Jerry, but a deeper voice for sure. On this nite as well as the next 2 a chair was brought on stage for him to sit and play during the show when he tired. We even joked at the time, that his sitting would be the key to a longer playing career. Hey Jer could be rolled out and rolled back!
Seriously, listen to the Touch. This was the first time the "bridge" from the album was played in public and it was a new place to go with the music, and there was NOT a DRY EYE in the house for the chorus at the end. I'll listen to the candyman and see.
That whole run had doubleentandra for every lyric and verse. The most searing moment for me was the 3rd night during Black Peter when Jerry chose not to sing the line "... I was layin' in my bed and...." That was pure joy that we still had papa to sing to us.

Five Stars for historical significance.
Subject: Great from head to toe
Subject: Return of the Dead
Subject: Jerry is back
The band and the crowd surpass the energy level on this one. Take a listen to candyman. The SBD is also good but lacking the crowd energy.
I give it a 5 for the energy
